The Dog Park

Last Saturday we returned to Crescenta Valley Park.  Hard to believe it's been almost three years since I painted there last.  I was ambitious and painted two pieces that day, Crescenta Valley Park.

It was another sunny Saturday but not too hot fortunately.  A party was being set up among the beautiful trees there.  A tempting subject to paint as I did last time.  But the dog park to the north with a hazy mountain view also caught my eye.  More and more kids and adults arrived for the party so I close the dog gouache.  It's a challenge to put into practice some of what I learned in the Mike Hernandez workshop I took in June.
